Can’t Find My Guitar

Luna: I don't know. It wasn’t with you when you came home from class yesterday.
Sam: Are you sure?
Luna: Absolutely. You were just carrying your backpack when you got home.
Sam: Oh, man! Then I probably forgot it at my friend’s place.
Luna: You’d better call him right now and make sure.
Where Are My Running Shoes?
Pearl: Why are you so annoyed? Is everything all right?
Genie: Don't even ask. I’m going to the gym but I just can’t find my running shoes.
Pearl: Which ones?
Genie: The ones I always wear when I go to the gym.
Pearl: Are you talking about the white Puma?
Genie: Yes. Have you seen them?
Pearl: Are you suffering from amnesia or something? You gave those shoes away last week.
Genie: I did? Gosh. How could I forget? I think I need some time off from this hectic schedule.
At the Supermarket
Luna: Hello. I was shopping here this afternoon and I think I left my cellphone at the cash register after I paid. But now I don’t see the lady who helped me.

Luna: Oh, great! Where is the lost and found?
Pearl: It’s right over here. Follow me.
Luna: …Yes! This is it! Thank you very much!!
Pearl: Sure! Glad I could help.

Genie: I put them on your dresser.
Sam: They’re not there.
Genie: I’m sure they are!...See? Here they are!! Right where I left them.
